Blaithwaite House: Pitches with countryside views

General

  • Family-friendly site with stunning views across Solway Firth
  • A 10-minute drive from the Lake District and 20 from the coast
  • Shops and restaurants five miles away in Wigton

Rural rambles without having to leave base – bag a berth at Blaithwaite House, 10 minutes’ drive from the market town of Wigton, for a taste of life on a Cumbria country estate.

And not just any old country estate – this one stretches for a generous 200 acres, bringing with it 50 acres of woodland to frolic in, and a walking trail that covers over two miles (Yes, it’s a big place, so best be picking up a map before striding forth.) Enjoyed that warm up? More walks, bike rides and other outdoorsy pursuits are 10 minutes’ drive away in the Lake District National Park or 20 minutes away on the Solway coast.

Time to catch your breath? Settle in on site for splendid views over the Solway Firth or to cook up something tasty at the barbecue and firepit area (shop ahead and you can stash your supplies in the site’s fridges and freezer). If cooking doesn’t appeal, decamp to a local pub – two such establishments an easy five-minute drive away serve up homemade food.

Still got energy to burn? Play areas, a football field and a playing field offer plenty of space to let off steam. If you’ve got a gaggle of buddies on hand, book ahead to mercilessly hunt them down with a game of laser tag… but whatever you get up to, don’t forget to give a cheery wave to Snowy the goat and her chicken pals.

The site may be sizeable, but facilities aren’t far-flung – washing-up areas and individual toilets and showers are in the pitches field and supplied with hot water from the eco-friendly biomass boilers.

A Great Place To Stay15/06/2021

    Return Visitor, due to how good the site is.
    The staff are very Helpful & friendly, and the site is wonderful. It is a very picturesque place with plenty to do within walking distance.
    The grounds are well kept & the facilities are of a high standard - well heated, good shower facilities & always kept clean.
    The location is great for exploring the Lakes as well as Southern Scotland. The off the track location means the surrounding roads are quiet, and traffic is only found on the main roads.

    What a wonderful place to stay in the Cumbria countryside, excellent facilities (especially the showers) well maintained and run by a friendly staff. Lots to explore on-site.

    Disliked: 

    A mobile home was placed on a pitch right in front of our teepee which we thought a bit odd as there were lots of other pitches available, so both parties felt a bit too close! Apparently that's the way they put everyone on site when it gets busy, so we're glad it was quiet during our stay.

    Toilet & shower blocks very good

    Disliked: 

    Initially shown to a pitch directly underneath a very large tree which unfortunately would not have accommodated our tent & gazebo for which we paid extra. Eventually offered an alternative pitch which was still a push to fit everything into despite the fact that this site advertises unlimited pitch size. Very uneven ground on both pitches. We do not have an excessively big tent compared to some. Very exposed to high winds at the end of our stay & left a day early

    The setting, the facilities, the pitches, our neighbours, the weather(!), everything was fantastic. A gem in the north west, cannot recommend it enough, we all had a great time!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing! Only one suggestion - the dog walking area is lovely, but a relatively small open & fenced-off area where dogs could be exercised off their leads and run about with other dogs would be the icing on an already great cake.
